Well Worth SeeingBy a customer from Salisbury, England , 12 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]I wasn't expecting this film to be as good as it is. Sure, Madonna is not the world's greatest actor, and in a way, her stardom detracts from any role she is likely to play, but she *looks* absolutely right for this part.
Rupert Everet is just wonderful as the gay best friend who has a one-night drunken fling and ends up being a father to their child. The film looks beautiful and tackles some very pertinent issues about parenthood and the rights of gay men. I enjoyed every minute of this film, and recommend it as a gay-theme movie, or just mainstream great entertainment.

was okBy a customer from Leeds , 13 Jan 2010this film was ok,,wasnt what i expected which was good but also not a great film..is ok to watch when there is nothing else on the tv
movingBy a customer from Towcester , 04 Jan 2009a very current plot which makes it believeble. Madonna comes through emotionally although the performances could be better
The Next Best ThingBy a customer from Great Missenden , 29 Oct 2008This was an OK film, Madonna was just Madonna with Rupert Everett being just fab. It would have worked better for me without Madonna. You sort of knew where this film was going by the time you were half way through which sort of spoiled it. The ending wasn't up to much either, it just finished. The Next Best Thing for me would be a different cast - with the exception of Rupert.
EnjoyableBy a customer from Penryn , 07 Aug 2008I can't rave over this film, but can't run it down either. It's one of those films that you enjoy watching but somehow when it's finished you get up and move on with your life.
shamefulBy tinkerbell1594 (1 review) from Wallingford , 07 Feb 2008When i saw adverts for 'the next best thing', i thought 'wow! i can't wait to see that!'. Unfortunately, i was disappointed. After i had watched it, i was left feeling very depressed.
